One of our readers, Angie D'Ingianni, took these gorgeous photos and put them up in the Spunky Coconut Facebook photos. She says, "Your recipes are wonderful! We followed them perfectly and made more than one batch... right on the money! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!"
As with anything in life, there is always criticism. Some criticism is constructive, like the time I wasn't specific about the kind of corn tortillas I used in my Mexican lasagna. Someone made it with a different type of tortillas than I had, and it was terrible. I always try to be more specific now. Of course, I'm only human, and I make mistakes. I also know that taste is subjective, and although one person may think a recipe is delicious, another may not like it at all. My own kids don't agree on which of my recipes they like and dislike. It can be very frustrating, as any mother knows. :-)
Luckily, more often than not, I get comments like this one, from Angie, and I am so grateful. It is such a privledge to help people, and so rewarding when you feel appreciated. Coming from an art school education, I never would have thought I would end up here, making food for special diets. It's funny how things turn out. I am still doing photography though, so I guess some things never change :-)
